State well being division has gained genome sequencing reviews of 604 RTPCR samples (whose CT ranges had been not up to 25) despatched in October. INSACOG (Indian SARS Cov2 Genomics consortium) has showed that Omicron persevered to dominate as sub-lineages of Omicron variant of Covid had been present in 570 samples, and ETA/kappa/pango variants of Covid had been present in 34 samples.

The excellent news is that no new sub variant of Omicron (BQ.1 present in USA, BA.2.3.20: a recombinant of BA.2.75 and BJ.1) or new “variant of outrage (VOC)” of Covid had been reported.

Sublineages of Omicron variant of Covid, BA2 has been showed in 477 samples; BA5 is showed in 91 samples; BA4 is showed in seven samples; BA1.1.529 is confimed in a single pattern.

90 according to cent of those samples for genome sequencing had been from Bengaluru, because the case load used to be proportionately upper within the town, as according to well being division assets. 
 
Well being division is doing Genome sequencing of Covid sure samples with CT worth underneath 25 amongst symptomatic global arrivals, the ones hospitalised or from huge clusters with greater than 5 circumstances or anywhere there may be outbreak with greater than 15 circumstances. 5 according to cent to ten according to cent of Covid sure samples are regarded as for genome sequencing.
